My HF3000

Race Car Details

My car is an HF3000 Lancia Stratos Replica, built as a kit from Hawk Cars. It is powered by a three-litre (2959cc) V6 engine from an Alfa Romeo 164, which is not too dissimilar to the Dino power unit fitted to the original Lancia. The engine fitted to my car has only been assembled to 'fast road' specification, since I do use it on the road as well.

Other information about the car here and a much older page here.
